Upcoming Games You Can’t Miss

Mark your calendars or set the DVR, here’s a list of some upcoming games that are can’t misses.

Carling Cup

January 27

Manchester United versus Manchester City at Old Trafford

This will be quite a match, as Manchester United look to avenge a 2-0 defeat by the foot of their old teammate, Carlos Teves. Emmanuel Adebayor will also be back in the City side. Tensions are high for this one as the mudslinging continued between Tevez and Gary Neville.

African Nations Cup

January 31

The teams are yet to be determined, but it could be a nice prelude to the World Cup takes place in less than six months.

Champions League Matches

For me, the Champions League is almost better than the World Cup. The teams play together for years and years and are a collection of hte best players in the world. We’ve got Beckham going back to Manchester United for the first time, and then the return of Mourinho to Chelsea. Couldn’t ask for much more? Will we see him slide down the sidelines again if they win?

Feburary 16

AC Milan versus Manchester United

Feburary 24

Internazionale versus Chelsea

English Premier League

A battle for fourth place in the EPL.

January 27

Aston Villa versus Arsenal at Villa Park

January 31

Arsenal versus Manchester United at Emirates Stadium

El Clasico

This game will most likely decide who be the La Liga champs.

April 11

Real Madrid versus Barcelona at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu

Donovan Watch

How can Donvoan go back to the LA Galaxy and the MLS after playing in these games against these teams? This will be quite a month for him as Everton play the big three.

Maybe he now understands Beckham a little better. I think Donovan learned a lot just from being around Beckham, who’s a true professional, and who’s played in the biggest leagues in the world and on the biggest teams.

February 6

Liverpool versus Everton at Anfield

February 10

Everton versus Chelsea at Goodison Park

February 20

Everton versus Manchester United at Goodison Park


The resurgence of Ronaldinho makes this game very interesting. The two teams will again most likely fight for the Serie A title. And if you’ve never seen one, you can’t miss seeing a River versus Boca game down in Argentina this Spring.

January 24

Inter Milan versus AC Milan

March 21

Boca Juniors versus River Plate at Alberto J. Armando


Who will win the Bundesliga? This game could very well decide it.

April 10

Bayer Leverkusen versus Bayern Munich at BayArena

The World Cup

The above list will almost take you to June, when the world’s greatest sporting event kicks off in South Africa. It’s coming a lot faster than you think.

Who will win the Cup? Will it be Spain or Argentina or a surprise team? Could this be England’s year. Perhaps an African nation will win for the first time and do it on their home soil.
